    powerful and ultra reliable brake?

    Ok I had Saints for 5yrs- loved em however they faded with time etc. Bought new servo-wave XT's and really couldn't get on with them- servo-wave reason? I just never felt confident with the lever feel.
    So no New Saints.
    Looked at Formula oro 24 but I've hear they can be unreliable/fiddly....true?

    How about Formula MEGAs or 'the One' on 203mm rotors? Any user views on these?

    I'm a heavy/tall rider who uses....erm his brakes 'a lot'

    I'm with you on the servo-wave, the auto power increase is kind of work backward for me. I have The one and I love it. It's the most powerful brake I own. I've seen some complaints about the maintenance on the one but after 1 year I've yet to change the pad.

    Good powerful brake would be Code, new Saint(it's brutal) and M4.
